When Santa got Stuck up the Chimney...

Hi folks...

today I am sharing my late DT card for My mum's Craft Shop.  I just gota little buy on Friday and forgot to post this.

I have used Santa is Stuck from Stamping Bella...he is such a cute little Santa to colour and is available now from the My Mum's Craft Shop store.  I have used my brand new Spectrum Noir Illustrator pens to colour this one...oh man they are sooooo juicy I love them!

The papers I have used are from Echo Park....which are cute too!

It's another Beautiful Day...

Hi folks, today I am sharing my DT tutorial for My Mum's Craft Shop...

When I last made a card using this stamp, I did receive lots of comments so as it is bacck in stock now over on the My Mum's Craft Shop store, I thought I would show you what I did.

First I cut a piece of watercolour card to size.

Using the Altenew Beautiful Day stamp set, I stamped up the flower and leaf using a veramark pad and then embossed the images with white embossing powder...I love white embossing with watercolouring.

Using my Zig clean Color Brush pens I first started colouring the leaves, just started with some colour at the stem ends and worked the colour out with a waterbrush.

Next I started in the centre of one of the flowers and not really being too precise, I coloured some yellow in the centre of the flower.

I then added some pink around the outside edges, this makes it easy to pull the colour from the edges and to blend with the yellow.

Using my waterbrush, I blended the yellow and pink together and then did the came on the next flower.

I just kept using the same process until all the flowers had been coloured.

I then went over all flowers and leaves added more colour util I got the shade I wanted....these pens are so vibrant you don't actually need that much colour.

I like to add shading around the images but instead of a normal greyish shadow I pulled the colour out from the flowers.... I think this is quite effective and it's a great way to cover up colour that has gone over the outside of the images.

I then loaded my waterbrush with colour and slashed some little splodges of colour...and then once dry I added some black splodges.

Here's the finished card.

Hope you perk up soon...

Morning folks, today I am sharing my DT card for My Mum's Craft Shop.

I have gone for the clean and simple look this time...not sure if it's just too plain for me as it's not my usual.....but I really loved the stamps and wanted to use them.

So the stamp I have used is from the Altenew Coffee Talk stamp set.  I stamped the wording onto kraft card, then added some splodges....these splodges are one of the stamps in the set.  I found a cup to use and coloured it with my Spectrum Noir Pens and then added some sequins to finish.

Spectrum Noir November Challenge

Hi everybody...have you seen the challenge over on the Spectrum Noir Facebook page??

This month's theme is "anything goes" with a Christmas twist... now how easy is that??  All you have to do is use some of the Spectrum Noir products.

I have used Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers for this months challenge.

For this card I stamped the image onto watercolour card, I scribbled the Aqua en onto acetate and lifted the colour with my waterbrush and coloured the image.

I did some fussy cutting and cut out the image and layered it onto my card.

You can also pop over to the Spectrum Noir blog to find out loads of tips and techniques on using all your Spectrum Noir products.
